Welcome to the Surrey Christmas Bureau

The Surrey Christmas Bureau is committed to making the holiday season unforgettable for low-income families in Surrey. We understand the importance of creating cherished memories during this time of year, especially for families facing financial challenges. Our mission is simple yet impactful: to provide essential holiday assistance that includes toys and gifts for children and grocery cards so families are able to enjoy those memory making holiday meals together. Through these initiatives, we aim to ensure that every child in Surrey can experience the magic of Christmas, regardless of their circumstances.


Our mission is to ensure that every child in Surrey has the opportunity to experience the joy of Christmas.


We provide essential holiday assistance, including toys, stocking stuffers, and grocery cards, to low-income families in need.


You can get involved by donating, volunteering, or spreading the word about our cause.


Our organization is guided by values of compassion, community, and inclusivity.
